History of the Vandal Persecution

Forside
Liverpool University Press, 1992 - 110 sider

Among the peoples who occupied the territories of the Roman Empire in the West in the fifth century, the Vandals are notorious for their persecution of the Catholic inhabitants of Africa. By far the fullest narrative of their doings prior to the time of Justinian is that provided by Victor of Vita, who in 484 wrote the greater part of the work here translated. But Victor does not merely provide an account of the activities of a persecuting people; his work is revelatory of the perspectives of an African Christianity that could look on the activities of the Vandals as merely one chapter in a long history of persecution.
